2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The bed bounce can be very annoying. If you live in a area with concrete highways I would test drive it there to see how it handles. My kids find it fun now but I think that might change in a few years. The power from the 5.7 is amazing, you can pull away from almost everything on the road.


Best Features

power, six cd changer with Sirius can't beat it, tail gate ( my kid can close it 5 years old), turning radius. easy to drive.


Worst Features

stop the bed bounce!

2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

It came down to either this truck, or a Dodge Ram and I jumped at the HUGE rebate offered back when gas was over $4 a gallon. The exterior and interior look similar (better IMHO) to the Dodge. Everyone, to include Dodge, Chevy and Ford owners love my truck. The MSRP was over $32K and I got it for ~$24 with TTT, running bars and a 10 year 100K miles Bumper to Bumper warranty. The only 2 things I dislike are the MPG and the CHEAP radio. I drove a Suburban previously, so I was use to the MPG plus, that was why I saved over $8000. The radio also was the standard one and there was no way I would pay for the Limited package. Almost 18,000 miles and only had to get the radio replaced.


Best Features

POWER! Over 400 HP and 400 TQ with the performance upgrades I added. The size and towing capacity. The value and reliability.


Worst Features

Better radio for the base/SR5 line. Just a little better MPG (1-2 MPG better).

2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

My third Tundra (2001 SR5, 2005 SR5 4WD Crew). The motor simply rocks, its quiet, smooth and incredibly powerful. I tow a 5000 lb boat and you don't even know its there. The tranny works well while towing, but has trouble finding gears at slower speeds when not towing, especially when taking off from a light. Other than that, its my least favorite Tundra. It just doesn't feel well put together, the throttle is very punchy, I have several rattles and have had to replace the radio, oh and the little gas pedal recall. I commute and can routinely get 19 mpg if I use cruise control, which is awesome.


Best Features

The motor, easy as that. Fuel mileage very respectable if you are light on your foot. Towing ability.


Worst Features

Squeaks, rattles, radio issues and recalls. Tranny could use some tweaking to cure some quirks.

2008 Toyota Tundra Tundra Grade 2dr Regular Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had the V8 in a 05 Tundra and got better mileage than this one with a 6 cyl but it has the power. If you get the V8 you will get 2 or 3 mpg better at least. I think I will wait for the hybrid when I get a new one. I really love this truck and the reg cab looks tougher than the dbl or crew


Best Features

Roomy especially if you like to have the window down and elbow out the window without touching the back edge. If you typically put the seat all the way back most other trucks the window is smaller check it out if you are a big guy. This feature is really nice


Worst Features

Hybrid

2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr Double Cab 4WD LB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

There is an occasional transmission "clunk" when coasting at about 35 mph. Other than that, this is the best truck I have ever owned. We haul an 8,000 pound trailer about 15,000 miles per year, often in mountains. Plenty of power! Often have 2,000 pounds in bed. truck doesnt even "squat". Truck has temperature gauge. Would also like a standard compass. Repair service of any kind has never been necessary


Best Features

Power, reliability


Worst Features

eliminate the coasting clunk (others have reported similar noise.) install a standard compass.
